Andy: thx for that fix. It looks that drivers works very well

I've got something like that during compilation:

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.19-2.8/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o
/lib/modules/2.4.19-2.8/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol __global_cli
/lib/modules/2.4.19-2.8/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol smp_call_function
/lib/modules/2.4.19-2.8/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol tqueue_lock
/lib/modules/2.4.19-2.8/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol __global_save_flags
/lib/modules/2.4.19-2.8/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol __global_restore_flags
/lib/modules/2.4.19-2.8/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol smp_num_cpus
/lib/modules/2.4.19-2.8/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o:

any ideas ?



I need help with one more thing. During Xserver statup:
Symbol __glXActiveScreens for module /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libdri. is unresolved!

dagger: unresolved symbols are caused by a mismatch between your kernel source configuration and your running kernel. Those symbols look like you've got an SMP kernel with a UP configuration, or vice versa. Please make sure they match.

The DRI symbol is harmless; to get rid of it, remove the 'Load "dri"' line from your XF86Config file.

Default Still no good

Hi.

Although I was a bit excited about the new driver for linux, I am not anymore. There still no support for 2.5 series kernels. Why is that so?

The other point I wan't to settle, is that NVidia DOES NOT provide SOURCES for their drivers. It may look so, but it ain't so. The so called "source" for the driver is just a wrapper for the already compiled driver (that big .o file in the so called source directory) so that kernel could use it. I hope that NVidia will release specs for their hardware so, that proper drivers by OSS community could be written, but I think that it will never happen. As from this moment on, I personally will never buy another NVidia product again, because their support for their hardware is not good at all. Hint: I won't buy ATI either. I'll go for my old love Matrox instead. Atleast those guys don't lie do you to make them look better.

Peace

Got the same drop in glxgears here, it used to run at 600'ish frames, and now it's 250'ish frames. Using a Duron 1200 mhz / GeForce 2 MX400 / Slackware 9.

Everything else seems to be working fine though, and since I don't really use the card for anything that needs 3D acceleration, I'm happy

The 2.5 kernels are development, and unstable. I have no problems with nVidia not supporting an unstable, changing every day, development kernel. When 2.6 is out, we can expect support from nVidia.

This is old news. The reason they don't release a source is because their hardware uses technologies leased from other companies. They can't release sources without breaking a handful of NDA's.

I don't mind that the drivers are not open source. What I like is having pretty much complete working drivers for my hardware. This type of mentality causes many manufacturer's to simply skip linux support alltogether.

The important part is that the OS itself is free, open, and not run by any one company. I have no problem with companies selling closed-source software, closed source drivers, etc. As long as the OS component is free, we're in good shape.

This is unlikely. nVidia is in the business of competing in a very tight market, and I'm sure the company brass wouldn't want others to clone their work. Although this would be highly unlikely, you can't do much to convince management.

Matrox boards are great, but they won't do 3D good enough to do the hard work.

As far as nVidia "lying" to us; you don't know what you're talking about. Maybe you believe what you want to believe, I don't know. nVidia has never hiddin the fact that the kernel module is not open source, and it's been stated several times by nVidia itself that the kernel module is a wrapper.

So go play with your Matrox boards. Do some word processing or something. Myself, I'm going to go play UT2003 now. See ya.

Andy: I have the latest 1.32 Release of q3a and have tried with and without DGA mouse.

If anyone else has Quake3 and is using this Driver without mouse problems please let me know.

Default X-Server crashes when ctrl+alt+del pressed

Hello!

My X-Server crashes and freezes the whole computer when pressing ctrl+alt+del to restart the x-server.

With 3123 there were no freezes!

My machine: SuSE 8.0, Kernel 2.4.20 (compiled with make oldconfig), Xfree 4.2 and new 4349-drivers self compiled)

Is this a known problem or how can I solve this?!

Please help - thx in advance...

You know that CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE are the right keys, not CTRL-ALT-DEL?

Just making sure =)

Default Re: XMMS and OO.o killed by new driver

I wonder how many other apps are broken by this driver. I've tested this on two machines running Phoebe-3 and the same effect is observed -- and I made sure to check that these apps were working before the driver was installed.
I'm currently running Red Hat 9, and both xmms and ooffice work fine. Time to upgrade!

Kill X, change to a virtual terminal, and type 'sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4349.run'.

--andy
Yes I was, will try in text mode after I upgrade to Red Hat 9.0 next week. New drivers are great by the way!

P.S. I still hope Nvidia decides to offer the two individual tar.gz source files, along with a single installation program.
